Bluewhite64 Linux 12.1 KDE4 LiveDVD RC1 released


I have the joy announcing a new version of the Bluewhite64 Linux 12.1 KDE4 LiveDVD release candidate one.

This release is built on a fresh install of the standard version of Bluewhite64 Linux 12.1 and includes all patches packages from the patches directory and the newly released KDE 4.1. Also, in addition to this release, we have added KDE4 applications like Amarok 1.90, Guidance Power Manager 4.1.0, Krusader 2.0.0, Ktorrent 3.1.2, KDE3 runtime libraries which allows you to run KDE3 applications, and many more. Take a look at the KDE4 LiveDVD ChangeLog to see more details about the added packages and see the Gallery with some nice captures.

To download, please select one mirror close to you form the Get Bluewhite64 page (the main mirror is down, consider this time the primary FTP and HTTP from ROEDU). The ISO is located at the bluewhite64-12.1-iso directory:

md5: 4f9d2e269cd0e9282e9732569cbaf909 Bluewhite64-12.1-KDE4-LiveDVD-RC1.iso

We like to be tested as much as you can in order to release the final and stable version, which is scheduled at September 1'st, and post your feedback at our forums or send email to info at bluewhite64 dot com.

I'd like to thanks to Kenjiro Tanaka for building the KDE 4.1 packages using Robby Workman's SlackBuilds scripts, Virgil Moldoveanu for building the applications for KDE4 and all others who will test this release .

Enjoy and happy testing!

How well does it handle Flash and Java? Would I need to install the 32 bit libs for it?

Thnx.

It is already installed the 32-bit emulation. Also, Flash works out-of-the-box with Firefox, Konqueror and Seamonkey while Java only in Konqueror.

Enjoy all.

P.S. The latest version will include an installer which will help you to install to your HDD . Right now it is under heavy testing.
